Ohara Davies
"Two Tanks"









Ohara Davies is a British professional boxer who was born in London, England, on February 9, 1992. With a career that spanned over 27 fights, Davies managed to win 25 of them, with an extraordinary 18 coming via knockout. He holds a professional record of 25-2 with no draws or no-contests.

Davies made his professional debut on April 19, 2014, against Ivans Levickis, whom he defeated via a four-round unanimous decision. The win was the first of many on his journey to becoming one of the best light-welterweight boxers in the world. For the next few years, he went on to win 14 consecutive bouts, 12 of which were via a stoppage.

Despite his promising career, Davies suffered his first professional loss on July 8, 2017, to Josh Taylor. During the fight, Taylor knocked him down twice in the seventh round, leading to the referee stopping the fight. Davies had no excuse, admitting that Taylor was the better boxer that night. Despite this loss, however, he recovered to go on an impressive seven-fight winning streak.

Davies' most recent fight was on September 30, 2020, against Tyrone McKenna. Davies won the WBC International light-welterweight title match via a narrow split-decision (96-94, 96-94, 95-95).

Davies' Professional Career

Davies began his professional boxing career against Latvian fighter Ivans Levickis on April 19, 2014, where he emerged victorious via a unanimous decision.

By the end of 2014, Davies held a record of 4-0 after knockout wins over Kristian Dochev, Andy Harris, and Oszkar Fiko. The latter two victories came on Matchroom Boxing shows.

In 2015, Davies won all five of his contests, ending the year with a record of 9-0. He defeated Lee Gibbons, Jacek Wylezol, Simas Volosinas, Dame Seck, and Chris Truman, with Wylezol being the only boxer to last the distance.

Moving up in weight, Davies won his first title on April 9, 2016, by defeating Andy Keates for the vacant English lightweight title. In his next fight, which was a non-title contest, he defeated both Zoltan Szabo and Chaquib Fadli via knockout.

The highlight of Davies' career at that point came on October 22, 2016, when he faced Andrea Scarpa, the WBC Silver champion. Davies won the match via a unanimous decision, earning him his first major title.

In 2017, Davies defended his WBC Silver light-welterweight title against former lightweight world title challenger Derry Matthews, whom he knocked out to retain his title. The victory would be Matthews' final match before retirement.

During the year, he also faced Josh Taylor, the undefeated Commonwealth champion. However, Davies lost the match via a TKO in the seventh round, bringing his professional record to 15-1.

In 2018, Davies started fighting under promotional banner against France's Christopher Sebire, which he won via a unanimous decision. His most notable opponent, however, proved to be Jack Catterall for the WBO Inter-Continental light-welterweight title, which he lost.
